Family Service 4th Sunday except in August
Every fourth Sunday at 10:00 AM for 1 hour
Sung Eucharist
The Eucharist is the central act of Christian worship and reveals the heart of the Christian faith. The word Eucharist means thanksgiving. It is an act of celebration. At the Sung Eucharist, with its resonant and beautiful words, we participate in long established rhythms of prayer and worship. Some of the singing is choir led, with the congregation participating through prayerful listening. The service includes Bible readings, a short talk, prayers for the world, the church and for those in need.
Every first second third fifth and last Sunday at 10:30 AM for 1 hour
Holy Communion 4th Sunday except August
Every fourth Sunday at 11:30 AM for ½ hour
Matts@5 informal service with café from 4:15pm
Come and join us for our informal service at 5pm. We start with a caf from 4:15pm in the church hall. This is a great place to meet new people and catch up with friends. We then move across to the church just before 5pm when the band then starts up for a time of worship, followed by a short life-impacting talk and an opportunity to pray. The children stay for the caf and the start of worship, before going to groups tailored for their age.
Every Sunday at 5:00 PM for 1½ hours
